Harbinger, providers of powerful, affordable sound-reinforcement solutions, introduces the new LP9800 14-channel powered mixer, the newest model in the company's popular LvL series.
A versatile solution for rehearsal spaces, gigs, and jam sessions, the LP9800 provides 800 watts of clean, high-headroom power. Drive stereo mains, split the power to handle both mains and monitors, or deliver all 800 wall-shaking watts in Mono Bridge mode-this flexible system can do it all. Each power-amp channel (mains and monitors) has a level control and a 5-segment LED input meter so you can check levels at a glance.
Line-level preamp outputs are provided for feeding powered stereo main and mono monitor speakers, so the LP9800 works great with virtually any speaker system. A pair of 1/4-inch line-level inputs let you route stereo signals directly to the amplifier.
You get 14 input channels with nine XLR microphone inputs and 1/4" TRS balanced line inputs-each with a -25 dB pad, rumble filter, and clip indicator-plus three stereo channels with XLR mic and 1/4" TS inputs, and a total of 14 line inputs. That's easily enough to mix and manage sound for an entire band. Every input channel has a 3-band EQ, effects send, and aux send. Globally switched, +48 volt phantom power serves all microphone inputs.
Dual, 9-band graphic EQ lets you shape the main or monitor mix. RCA Aux In and Aux Out jacks can route break music from a CD/MP3 player, send the main mix to a recording device, and more.
A sweet 24-bit, stereo, digital effects processor delivers studio-grade reverb, delays, and various other effects, complete with a Quick Parameter control, on/off switch, and 16 performance-ready presets. The effects can be routed to both the mains and the monitors, with separate level controls. You even get a jack for an effects-bypass footswitch (not included).
The ruggedly built LP9800 is ready for the rigors of performance, too, with protective corners and covering.
"We wanted to create a versatile, high-quality, yet very affordable powered mixer that would meet the needs of casual performers and working musicians alike," explains Harbinger Product Manager Jim Norman, "and the LP9800 delivers on all counts. It's easy to set up and use, it sounds great, and it's built to last. Here is an excellent solution for a wide variety of gigs and for rehearsal spaces as well."
The Harbinger LP9800 is available now at Guitar Center and Musician's Friend with a street price of $349. For more information, visit www.harbingerproaudio.com.
